The opening Sunday fixture for AFL Round 17 sees Carlton take on Adelaide at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast.

If predicting this result only a few weeks ago, it would be forgone conclusion in the Blues' favour, however, the bottom-placed Crows arrive off back-to-back victories which gives this contest a little more intrigue.

Former Carlton player Bryce Gibbs will take on his old side in what's set to be his 268th and final AFL game on Sunday.

Carlton vs Adelaide Match Up

Although they'll need plenty to fall their way, Carlton are still in with a mathematical chance of making finals in 2020 and if that's to continue, they need a big win over Adelaide this Sunday to boost their percentage.

Whilst there's not a stack of depth in either the Crows or Blues midfields, Carlton are classier on the outside which is complemented by good key position stocks at both ends.

The Crows will perhaps fancy themselves at ground level up front with Stengle, Murphy and McAdam looking to cash in on thier speed versus a bigger-bodied Carlton defence.

With more areas covered over the field and as the far more consistent side in 2020, Carlton do look the safer option in this contest against the Crows who now leave Adelaide and a home crowd which has certainly helped in recent times.
